It’s a great style element and one you’ll see incorporated into all sorts of furnishings, from rugs and lamps, to chairs, fabrics, and chests. The quintessential emblem of classic design, the Greek key (meander) motif was named for the river Meander in ancient Greece where it came to be a symbol of infinity and the eternal flow of things. This continuous geometric form in today’s home décor represents the perfect balance of simple and elaborate, modern and ancient, masculine and feminine.
The Greek key is striking as the trim on drapes or pillows. Find it carved or painted on the front of a chest, in the fabric of upholstery, serving as the arms for a chair, the base of lamp, or incorporated into wallpaper and rugs.
No matter if your home is traditional or modern, the Greek key is a fluid, simple design. It’s gorgeous in any color so it’s easily adaptable to be effective in any room.
